Coming Together: Community Relief Fund

Thanks to the many generous donors to the Community Relief Fund: COVID-19, people are receiving rental assistance and help with food.

Check out the details of who this work is helping – and consider joining them:

Rental Assistance. Help is going to King County residents who have lost part or all of their income due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are behind on their rent. 

Access to Food. Our team is helping get food to people who need it through extra support at food banks and community meal sites. Plus, roughly 1,800 families will receive two grocery vouchers of $400 each. 

Next up: We have exhausted initial funding for rental assistance, if you would like to join this impressive group of donors and keep this work going, please connect with James Modie at jmodie@uwkc.org or:
